Skyfall (2012)

Skyfall, from Albert R Broccoli’s EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment,  shot at Pinewood Studios.

Production notes from the film describe:

31 different sets were constructed on eight different sound stages for this movie, including the interior of the MI6 underground bunker, the exterior and interior of the Golden Dragon Casino on the Paddock Lot and D Stage, and the exterior of the Dead City on the North Lot.

The Albert R. Broccoli 007 Stage, named after James Bond film producer Albert R. Broccoli, was used to carry out the Underground Train crash scene for which the crew built two full size train carriages, each weighing seven tons. It was too dangerous to allow people to stay on the sound stage for this crash scene, so ten remotely operated cameras were placed around the stage to catch the action from various angles.

The explosion of the MI6 Headquarters scene in London was represented by a few fireworks on the day, then an MI6 model was later rebuilt at a third of the scale on the Backlot at Pinewood where Chris Corbould, the film’s special effects and miniature effects supervisor, used twenty-eight explosives to replicate the attack.
